The enlightenment project is truly over. As Bendell indicates, we have to accept we are not in control - never have been - and progress is not inevitable. I am not sure some on the left get this. Hence the fetishisation of technology.
We need less hubris and more humility.
It's interesting that he references Dark Mountain who understand that we need a new story that embraces the reality of our situation.
Kingsnorth gets the humility bit. But, I'm not sure I'd want to go as far as putting my fate in the hands of a deity - though I can see the attraction of surrendering.
Bendell's right if he does not believe renewables/nukes/net zero are a panacea.
We have to consume a lot less overall and redistribute a lot more.
He's right that a god/charismatic leader will not save us. Or technology.
He's right there's likely to be pushback against authoritarian faux-solutions. Many deny the problem because they - rightly - suspect those pushing the faux-solutions.
We are certainly into adaptation. Whether we can build local resilience - globally - and thus retain our freedoms is another matter.
Corporate owned states will certainly be pushing their multi-faceted authoritarian agenda - the illusion that they can control the future.
We shall see.
My betting is on chaos.
